Pointer Rescue -- helping to make a difference

Max Needs Your Help!

Max (formerly Andy) - 10 years old, fostered in Virginia
Dog ID#: 150763-P-D-KY

Hi! I'm Max! The guess is I'm around 10, but I'm still pretty spry! Us pointers don't slow down until really late in life.

When I came in to rescue, I had heartworms. It was kind of a bummer, cause during my treatment, I had to stay calm. BORING! I've finished my treatment and am on preventative. That means I'm good to go! I'm not too hyper. I haven't quite figured out toys and how to play with my foster sister yet, but I'm making progress. We've had some pouncing and I've started to pick up toys. My foster parents say I'm a "dork" sometimes. I'm not sure what that means, but it makes them laugh. So it's all good. I think it just has to do something with being a pointer.

I'm crate trained and can sit. It's very hard to sit when there are other dogs around though, they might get my treat! I am housebroken too. I have no leash manners, so I just got fitted for a harness. It helped my foster sister learn to walk nicely and it should help me too. I look quite dapper in it, if I do say so myself

I like to sit on the couch with the people (and without them. Hee-hee!) I am happy to sit and get scratches. I love attention. I get in trouble sometimes, because I shove other dogs out of the way. It should always be MY turn. I do o.k. with my foster sister, but there used to be a boy here and I was not too happy about that. I'd be more than happy to be an only dog and get ALL the scratches! I should be ok with a sister though or a human who can help me learn that I am not in charge.

Do you have a lap? Yes? Then what are you waiting for? Fill out the adoption form so you can bring me home! I'm waiting…

Max has a CCL injury to his right rear leg. At this time we are opting for a conservative, non-surgical approach due to his age and the fact that he's not a very active dog anyway. He's somtimes gimpy, and sometimes seems to forget that it's injured.

Max is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his shots.
